More official RWBY work from ep. 1! Most of the work I did for them are things that are eventually going to be modeled in 3D so I always had to keep that in mind. I eventually started working under Taylor Pelto (who is awesome btw!), who is their 3D environment artist but now the overall Art Director for RWBY.
The middle two grayscale images is something I pulled together pretty quick when they wanted a ship platform design and an added walkway surrounding the school.
The image at the end is a matte painting they asked me to do for the end of ep 1. There are lots of new things I learned myself while trying to figure out how this was going to translate as a background image to a moving 3D image in the foreground. I included a little gif of the process :)
More to come later!
